Probing the hand that Doles Out AVERTISTMENTS
What is the expectation of a mother or a father of a sick child who submits a prescription from a doctor to a pharmacy in any part of the country? Dispensation of the prescribed drugs by a qualified pharmacist. But what of the ground situation not even in a village off the beaten track but in several areas quite close to the capital? Drugs being dispensed by so-called pharmacists who are unqualified or hardly qualified, without the direction of a Registered Pharmacist, without whom no pharmacy can seek to do business.
Salute to Snowy
The place is Weli Oya and the date March 14. Terrorists are engaging with government troops and a soldier has been injured. Two Army units set out in search of the attackers, and an LTTE cadre is killed. The Army officers decide to enlist the support of their tracker dogs, and the next day Army dogs “Snowy” and “Bonny” are sent to the battlefront in the company of their handlers. The dogs are given stray items of clothing left behind by the rebels.
Natasha wows West End
I had heard a lot about "the Sri Lankan girl who is doing really well in the West End" but never seen her in a production. I didn't expect to open the door to a slim, long-legged, gazelle-like creature, with a rippling sheet of hair, who walked gracefully in and shook my hand in the friendliest manner. Just turned 26, Natasha Jayatileke already has an enviable record in musical theatre. At 23, fresh from university, she appeared in her first West End show, as a supporting dancer in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.
